Astoria Police Department participates in National “Click It or Ticket” Campaign

The Astoria Police Department is reminding drivers about the benefits of wearing their seatbelt. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) national Click It or Ticket high-visibility enforcement effort is underway.  During the Click It or Ticket enforcement effort the officers of the Astoria Police Department will be looking for and stopping vehicles whose drivers or passengers are not wearing their seatbelt.  As part of these traffic stops, our officers will be working to educate drivers and passengers that buckling up is the simplest thing they can do to limit  injuries or even save lives during a crash.

With Memorial Day weekend, Astoria will see increasing traffic into the summer months.  The Astoria Police Department is asking for your help by always driving safely and wearing your seatbelt. We want buckling up to become automatic for all drivers and passengers.   It’s not only a safe thing to do but it’s also the law.
